Post hi ! new here! -- 560 SEC !!!


thought i would intro myself.

I'm 17 years old and for years I have wanted a coupe with a big V8 in it. I would love an old chevelle, but the prices on american muscle cars are through the roof and I don't have that kind of cash. SO my uncle convinced me to buy a mercedes benz instead. I did not know that benz also made cars with lots of power and a V8. was a complete newb. then i found the 560 SEC and the 500 SEC. i found that I can buy a beautiful 560/500SEC for the same price as a rusted out chevelle with a ruined interior i was looking at. any tips or comments on these cars? reliability? things things to watch out for? I'm going to have about $5,000 to spend to buy it. i will turn 18 on april 29th this year so then I will be able to legally sign the title for it. absolutely cannot wait to have a car like this. i live in St. Louis, missouri so if there are any locals that could help me find one in my range it would be much appreciated.
